Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: the weigh-in

Camera: OIS is the best

The iPhone's getting a new camera – but the same megapixel count

Both models sport an 8MP iSight camera with f/2.2 aperture, True Tone flash and 1.5-micron Focus Pixels, which Apple says speeds up the autofocus. On the video front, both can now record 1080p footage at 60fps and slow motion 720p footage at 240fps. All of that sounds good to us – but there’s one crucial difference between the two: the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation, which physically moves the lens components to compensate for your hand’s movements. It’s a feature which should drastically boost the iPhone 6 Plus’ performance in low light, and we’re a bit disappointed Apple couldn’t fit it into both models.

Winner: Apple iPhone 6 Plus

OS: they’re the same

iOS 8 apiece

Oh, come on.

Look, they both use iOS 8. It’s the same operating system on both phones. Got to be a draw.

Not happy? Alright then, we’ll bite. We suppose you could say the iPhone 6 Plus has a slightly different OS because it supports landscape orientation on more apps – but nobody in their right mind is going to buy a phone just for that. So we’re sticking with a draw.

Winner: Draw
